Honey in Medford, NJ

Honey is ready for adoption! This 6-year-old Ruby female is an extremely sweet and cuddly girl that loves her people close by. Honey came to rescue due to a family divorce.

She is spayed, weighs 20 lbs. and is fully house-trained. While in rescue she had her teeth cleaned and has been treated for chronic nasal congestion. Within the last month, she had a rhinoscopy and CT scan to try to uncover the root cause of her ongoing nasal issues.

 

The good news is that she did great during the procedures and there is no significant diagnosis. The vets concluded that she has chronic rhinitis which will need to be monitored in her forever home as she may be more prone to infections, as we have experienced during her stay in rescue.

She is currently on antibiotics and allergy medication to help manage the condition and a secondary infection. This is a chronic condition, and while not pretty all the time, she makes up for it by her sweetness. Luckily she is a happy girl despite the occasional bout of sneezing or coughing, and she is very patient letting foster mom wipe her nose! A previous vet thought she had a grade 1 heart murmur, the more recent vet said no murmur. Apart from her sinus congestion, she is in great health.

 

Honey is a very friendly girl and loves visitors both human and dogs, though we think she would be great as an only pet. She is friendly with children and cats. She walks very well on a leash and loves to explore in the fenced in yard. She listens very well and comes immediately to you. She knows a few tricks that she breaks out at treat time: sit, down, paw and stay. She adores her people and would be most content if she could share the couch and big person’s bed with you.

 If you live within a reasonable driving distance and are interested in welcoming this sweet girl into your home, please fill out the online application and email Cavalier Rescue Coordinator Rebecca Plimpton (This email address is being protected from spambots.
